John from Rock Island, Illinois used to use a Mac computer with Quicken on it. Then his computer died, taking down his personal finance software with it. Now he’s looking for an inexpensive replacement.
First, I told him about GnuCash. This open-source software is free. Plus, it’s available for Windows, Mac OS C, Solaris, BSD and Linux. It’s easy to use yet powerful. It’s an intuitive program you can use as a checkbook register.
I also suggested Personal Capital, which is ideal for people planning for retirement. It even helps you by providing an overview of your entire net worth and the option for paid investment services. If your finances are in check, but you want to make sure you’re investing correctly and planning for your next steps, Personal Capital is perfect for you.
